Charlotte, NC – December 2014… Neutrik USA, the leading supplier of robust and reliable professional connectivity solutions for audio, video, and data, is pleased to announce the recipients of the company’s 2014 premierPARTNER Awards program. The premierPARTNER Awards recognize five select companies that have developed an innovative product that incorporates Neutrik-brand connectors and meets the highest level of innovation for their segment of the industry.

The Neutrik premierPARTNER Awards program is extremely selective. As Neutrik connectivity products are engineered for professional users, only the most high-end and innovative solutions are eligible for the award. The use of Neutrik connectors demonstrates to a potential customer that quality matters.

Recipients of a Neutrik premierPARTNER Award have their product displayed on Neutrik USA’s Experience Neutrik Website (www.experience-neutrik.com). Recipients receive a framed award for display on their company premises and Neutrik USA displays a similar version of the award at the company’s Charlotte headquarters. Additionally, a video of these awards runs at Neutrik’s booth during tradeshows to help promote the various innovative products incorporating Neutrik connectivity.

The recipients of the Neutrik 2014 premierPARTNER Awards include:

• Meyer Sound LYON Compact linear line array loudspeaker
• Avid VENUE | S3L-X Portable Live Sound Mixing Console and Accessories
• EAW OTTO Adaptive Subwoofer
• EMG Pickups Electric guitar and bass output jack assemblies
• D‘Addario The American Stage Kill-Switch Cable

Jeff Rocha, EAW President, reflected on his company being named a recipient of Neutrik’s premierPARTNER Award. “Having selected Neutrik PowerCON True1 for our premier touring full-range system (Anya), we decided to continue the trend with Otto – allowing us to standardize power cabling and distribution across all EAW Adaptive Systems. Because Otto extends Anya’s remarkable pattern control capabilities deep into the sub-bass range, we knew that it would be imperative for the two systems to work together seamlessly; both in terms of their acoustical performance and in their setup and operation. Using the Neutrik True1 connector to deliver power to the entire Adaptive Systems platform helps us to achieve this goal.”

Jim D’Addario, President of D’Addario & Co., offered his thoughts on receiving a Neutrik premierPARTNER Award. “Neutrik and D’Addario partnered closely to design and develop the exclusive connectors utilized in our American Stage cable line. American Stage cables are assembled in D’Addario’s Farmingdale, NY facilities utilizing exclusive Neutrik connectors and proprietary USA-made cable. All American Stage connectors are made to exacting specifications in Neutrik’s Liechtenstein factory. The ¼-inch connectors include D’Addario’s patented Geo-Tip technology. The new American Stage Kill-Switch Cable incorporates a push button signal cancelling feature. The Kill-Switch was the result of direct collaboration between Neutrik CEO, Werner Bachmann and myself. The Killswitch enables performers to swap instruments on stage without having to mute their amplification system during the changeover.”

Peter Milbery, President of Neutrik USA, Inc., commented on this year’s premierPARTNER Award winners, “We are fortunate to be involved with so many amazing manufacturers in the professional audio industry. This program is an excellent opportunity for industry professionals to learn about new and innovative products that incorporate Neutrik connectors. We constantly discuss new product designs and debate which ones should be included in our reward program. It’s not an easy job because we put a limit on the awards. This year it was only five. We believe that promoting innovative products that utilize our connectivity solutions benefits not just Neutrik and our partner companies, but most importantly, it benefits professional users by making them aware of these high-end and innovative solutions. When you look closely at the award, you’ll see that it’s a badge much like a Neutrik employee badge. What this represents to us is that these companies are true partners and a vibrant part of our team. Presenting these awards is one of the highlights of the year for all of us at Neutrik USA.”.

WorxAudio Technologies Helps Inspire Worshippers At Northeast Worship Institute 2014

JKell_HiFairless Hills, Pennsylvania, November 2014… Each spring, Calvary Full Gospel Church hosts the Northeast Worship Institute (NWI), a gathering where highly experienced educators provide training for worship teams, worship leaders, and tech teams. Because the ability to hear clearly is crucial if one is to benefit from the classes, organizers wanted the best sound-reinforcement capabilities for this year’s event. They found it in a system from the TrueLine catalog of WorxAudio Technologies, a division of PreSonus Audio Electronics.

Full-service audio-visual integration firm Horizon AV of Pitman, New Jersey, was contracted to handle sound reinforcement for this year’s event. After meeting with NWI’s organizers, Horizon AV COO Joshua Kell elected to deploy two WorxAudio TrueLine XL5T-P line array systems and a pair of WorxAudio TL218SST-P subwoofers.

Reports Kell, “The WorxAudio system we deployed was for the main hall and as a result was used for larger gatherings. The two XL5T-Ps were flown on each side of the stage at a height of 20 feet using Genie towers. The distance between the left and right hangs was 50 feet. For low-frequency support, the two TL218SST-P subwoofers were positioned next to each other, directly in front of the stage.” more
